Lancashire parents have been told their two-year-olds could be eligible for free childcare.

Mums, dads, guardians and carers across the county including Chorley are urged to contact Lancashire County Council to see if they qualify.

It is available where the parent or guardian receives: income support or income-based job seekers' allowance; income-related employment and support allowance; child tax credit; the guarantee element of state pension credit; or immigration act support.
